September 21, 2011

today's DIY (do it yourself) project was inspired by my post yesterday about grunge. what better way to embrace this cool 90's trend then to shed some stuff up!? there are many designers that have created a full-fledged career out of shredding oversized t-shirts, but no one does it better then Riguel Alegra (see her amazing work below). so taking some inspiration from Miss. Alegra and following the DIY steps from this fabulous Blogger from Finland OutsaPop... i'm going to shred some shirts today! yippy! i'll let you know how it goes... 

**see more DIY's on the left index under "the goodies"/"do it yourself"... enjoy!
